Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television
A black square, within the picture, as if to black out the screen, appears after BRAVO! has been on for about 10 minutes. Grandchild was here and think she might have played with the remote. It looks like what might happen if you programmed in something to block out a child from watching something on a channel.
I can remove it temporarily by hitting the "Display" button but it comes back in 5-10 mins. When the TV is turned off and back on, the screen is OK for 5-10 mins but then the "black sqaure" returns. (Sometimes it has something like a line of Chinese printing on it as well.) At one point, there were several rectangles with this printing across the screen but that seems to have stopped.
Check the closed caption feature in the menu setup. Consult the instruction manual about closed caption, or call the manufacture tech support.
What is probably activated is the closed caption bulletin board feature, and the station you are tuned to has the board up but with nothing on it. They use these to put text messages mainly for programming schedules and notifications.
